Image stabilization

The G100 does not have any mechanical image stabilization, which Panasonic says would make the camera body too big. It is usually bundled with stabilized lenses and offers electronic image stabilization in video mode.

1080 video has shake corrected in five axes (pitch, yaw, vertical and horizontal translation, and roll), whereas 4K footage is not corrected for roll. Panasonic says this correction is based on the same gyroscopic sensors and algorithms used in its physical IS systems, to maximize performance.

However, since electronic IS is delivered by windowing (capturing video from different regions of the sensor in response to the movement the camera experiences), it means that the camera needs to crop-in, to provide room to move the active window around.
